CFP (Conference): Pictures of the Holocaust, American University of Paris - conference postponement (New Deadline 31 January 2021)

Due to the uncertainty surrounding the covid pandemic, regrettably, we have decided to postpone our conference Pictures of the Holocaust. The new date for submitting proposals is now January 31st, 2021. We are hoping that the new conference dates will be in early July 2021. However, because the situation is still evolving and fluid, we are not able to fix exact dates. We will announce the new dates for the conference at the earliest moment that we possibly can.
